When entrepreneurs pitch their already successful products on Shark Tank, sometimes the Sharks question their motives. A common question: Are you really here for a deal or are you just using the Shark Tank platform to sell more product quickly? Everyone knows after appearing on Shark Tank, a business receives the “Shark Tank bump” in sales. Chris Gronkowski, the inventor of Ice Shaker, will like be asked similar questions as he brings his millionaire brother, Super Bowl champion Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots, with him on stage (along with his other muscular brothers).
Ice Shaker is a non-odor absorbing stainless steel, vacuum insulated bottle that keeps drinks (water, protein shakes, etc.) cold for up to 30 hours. Each 26 oz. bottle sells for $29.99 on the website. It’s also for sale on Brookstone and Amazon (see link above). And Chris Gronk has the highest-paid tight-end in the NFL promoting the product, even on talks shows like Conan (see below). Think he needs Mr. Wonderful or A-Rod — when he’s got The Gronk? Shark Tank airs Sundays at 9pm on ABC, right after America’s Funniest Home Videos.
